New RC baptismal records

The Ulster Historical Foundation has added almost 9000 new Catholic baptismal records from three Belfast churches.

The new records come from:

  • Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church, Belfast – 1890-1929
  • St Mary’s Roman Catholic Church, Belfast – 1901-1930
  • St Vincent de Paul Roman Catholic Church, Belfast – 1869-1929

Baptismal records generally contain the names and addresses of the parents and the names of the sponsors. Entries may contain details about the later marriage of the child; in a number of cases the marriage actually took place outside Ireland (in Britain, Canada, New Zealand or the U.S.)
